68 INSIDE AMELS
We’d like to show you just how remarkable pearl effect paintwork is. However, the limitation of print means you won’t see it in these pages. Only those fortunate enough to see MADAME KATE themselves, perhaps in the brilliant sunlight of the Mediterranean, can appreciate the unique paintwork. The 60-metre superyacht is the first AMELS to be completely finished in a pearl effect paint system.
The application of Brilliance First AMELS superyacht ever with full pearl effect finish Never seen before on a Limited Editions yacht, MADAME KATE’s complete hull and superstructure is in a ‘pearl effect’ paint system. In sunlight, this lustrous coating on the AMELS 199 will look like no other, fully revealing the radical lines and contours of Tim Heywood’s exterior design. The idea came from the owner’s passion for automobiles such as the Bianco Isis of Lamborghini. Owner representative Benoit Faure says the owner had two ideas for the colour of his new AMELS 199. Both options had to fulfil the same criteria – something that would stand out. “The owner had in mind a yacht which would be very special to him, he also wanted a yacht that would be different from all other yachts in terms of design,” he says. “This factor of recognition was very important for him.”
